They started doing callbacks... any info? salary for the fellowship? Is a 1 year fellowship at a private firm really even worth it?

Yes, esp. if you want to do whistleblower/FCA cases. There's really no one quite like Philips&Cohen in that field.

how big of a market is whistleblower/FCA cases though? Seems like almost no exit options for a 1 year fellowship that doesn't turn into a full time offer.

Most people who do whistleblower cases I want to do it as a career. People do not go to a firm like Philips Cohen looking to get another job.

I thought they weren't hiring entry level associates anymore because they started the post-grad fellowship.

The way the guy described it in the interview was that the fellowship offered a chance to develop litigation skills since a lot of public interest organizations don't have the money to train new grads, and P&C offers a more attractive option for some new grads who want to go into PI than having to go to a big firm first. It made sense to me the way he described it.

Does anyone know what the salary is for the fellowship?

apparently the salary is pretty significant, at least for a fellowship (not 1styear biglaw level though).
